"It is only upwards from here," wife Kim Zolciak says.

Kroy Biermann suffered a painful blow this week following a football injury that left him with a torn achilles tendon. Kim Zolciak's husband, who plays defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons, will be sidelined for the rest of the season.

But things are slowly turning around for the gridiron giant. Kroy, who just turned 28, had successful surgery today and is recovering well. Kim shared a photo on Instagram (below), along with the message, "Only my hubby would still be smiling...IT IS ONLY UPWARDS FROM HERE!!!! Ask, Believe and Receive. My hubby is the most incredible person! His attitude, his outlook, his positivity is like no other! Kroy, you my love inspire us all!"

It appears Kim inspires him too. Earlier in the day, her daughter Brielle shared a sneaky photo of the couple nuzzled together in his hospital bed.

Though Kroy is currently recovering, he won't have much time to rest. Kim is pregnant with twins, which are due soon. The couple "couldn't be more excited," Kim shared recently. And she's been flaunting it: the mom to four kids proudly bared her baby bump in a skimpy bikini.

Send your well-wishes to Kroy for a speedy recovery in the comments!
